  • Maradona, 100% mala persona, degenerado y sádico . Que en paz descanse

  • We miss him every Day Diego became a Legend

  • I'm from Argentina, and I am wondering how two genius like Diego and Ayrton Senna (F1) were so big that, as you say, you can see some ... different touch. Now, you can also see the importance of education and wealth. While Maradona's personal life was a disaster, Ayrton's personal life was full of greatness too. Senna was a strong believer of god, he was from a rich family from Brazil and many times he said that at some point he felt he was out of himself and driving in Monaco was as easy as going through a light tunnel. I don't believe in god, what I do believe is that when you reach such a level of perfection you get the full potential of your energy and senses, we are all humans however not everyone is determined to reach and pass its own potential.

    • @Priscilla Raj It does not change my point.... Both of them where .... outstanding, if F1 is less popular in your country that's another story. People who understand F1 know that Senna was almost a super human, the same as Maradona. Ask a Japanese about Senna... My point is how education helps people to have such an impact without doing what Maradona has done outside the football field.

    • I can't just agree with you here. Maradona's name has gone to the farthest corner of earth. We in Bangladesh grew up with Maradona on our lips. But Sena was merely known to the professional circle and fans, which was big but never comparable to Maradona's. The whole earth for at least two generations have put itself on the head of this great Argentine lion. He carried the burden and yes, sometimes it felt too too heavy on him that he just drifted away.

  • There's something special in him special that clearly goes beyond the football. Champion among normal people, brave among non brave people, paladin of poors against rich people, the weakest and the strongest ever at same time, coherent until his end in good and in bad. I hope to meet him in my next life

  • What a beautiful tribute to an amazing individual. A very very fitting tribute. I remember watching the final of Mexico 86 in Italy and he had something that transcended boundaries. He influenced me to learn and speak the Spanish language from being a child. He impacted people in the biggest and smallest of ways, but nevertheless he impacted on people. A true true great and I for one will miss him tremendously. His personality, his energy, his passion, his rage, and his love. An absolute tragedy to go so soon, but I think his work was done on this earth. I hope he now finds peace, and gets the help he needs in the arms of God, and I hope he lives every single day from now on as he did that day back in 86. And he died CLEAN!! That is a testament in itself!! Everyone is human and everyone makes mistakes. El pago un precio muy alto por todos sus errores, pero..al fin del dia...LA PELOTA NO SE MANCHA!! Y murio LIMPIO, y finalmente esta liberado de todas los adicciones. Estoy segura q va a dar dos dedos a la gente q le hacian mal, y la gentuza q siempre queria ver lo peor de el. Ahora es la hora pa recordar lo MEJOR. QEPD Diego ❤❤

  • "we should celebrate those moments of greatness that he alone gave us. A person from an impoverish - basically peasant background - attaining such heights through God-given talent, a talent that ultimately was too big for him to hold"

  • There Maradona has it, he is scored by two, Maradona steps on the ball, the genius of world football starts from the right, leaves the third and goes to play for Burruchaga ... Always Maradona! Genius! Genius! Genius! Ta-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta ... Goal ... Goal ... I want to cry! Good God, long live football! Golaaazooo! Diegoooool! Maradona! It is to cry, forgive me ... Maradona, in a memorable run, in the play of all time ... Cosmic kite ... What planet did you come from to leave so many English on the road, so that the country is a clenched fist screaming for Argentina

  • You ask why it matters: th-vision.net/detail/%E0%B8%A7%E0%B8%B5%E0%B8%94%E0%B8%B5%E0%B9%82%E0%B8%AD-gNqx_bAqjAo.html So, a famous football comentator die and then Diego walks through the street to arrive to his funeral... There were conflictiv times, like allways, and in Argentina the economic troubles and crisis in the last 80s produce inflation, so unemployment, and cuts to the senior people, the old retired workers. Like everywhere. The well known comentator dies alone with no money because that... So Maradona tires to get there and in his way, people try to touch him like a god, and all this stuff, and some old people tell him to support seniors... But someone stole his hat... and a confusión appears. He tires to find the hat asking who stole to him, bit nothing happends... He is angry ( because allways people takes things from him, he allways males presents to everyone, but this time he was stolen. and that hat was a personal gift... So someone tells 'why are u get mad Maradona?? That s just a hat, make it for the seniors...' So he really get mad and punch with his head to that Man ( he realized that one was the thief ..). Later that, he told one of his mate: 'Coco, didn't you told me it was only 2 blocks..??? Told you we better arrive with car... Before that and interview explaining what happends, telling he is supporting to death to argentinian seniors, and finally arrives to the funeral. In just a few meters he fought for his personal hat, he fight por the limits le his public life, he fight with a no respect guy, literally, fight for seniors people, and fight for a forgotten one... That s why is important. Who didn t betray is not forgotten. RIP Diego.

  • I just saw your video and the truth is exciting as you describe in words ... what Diego Maradona was ... I'm from Argentina ... and the truth is there is a love hate towards the English after the war we are not a warlike country we never were ... but Diego Maradona was a unique talent as Lennon said in an interview he was born out of nowhere to conquer the world ... Diego Armando Maradona the best player in history

  • He had the playing style of messi and zidane in him. But he was a warrior and leader and fearless on the pitch. He Used to get fouled 20 times a game. Carried Argentina and napoli on his back.came back from a broken ankle ankle and won the world cup while haveing addictions. That is not easy respect to the best ever to play the game.

  • Well put up thoughts about Diego, he in fact was not the saint that his football playing portrayed, but just another human being trying to get out of normalness and into greatness, and that's what people like me love about him. RIP Maradona.
